Vancouver Art Gallery hosts a historic exhibit: MASHUP

The Vancouver Art Gallery's largest exhibition ever opens to the public on Saturday and promises to change the way we think about art and the way we see the world.

MashUp - the Birth of Modern Culture traces the emergences and evolution of mashup culture, and will occupy the entire 4 floors of the Vancouver Art Gallery. The exhibition will feature more than 371 pieces of work by 156 different artists.

Bruce Grenville, senior curator of MashUp comments: 'MashUp is where different art maintains their indivudual indentity and form, but in proximity with each other becomes something new.  The exhibition highlghts key events and new modes of creativity.'

The Vancouver Art Gallery as spent nearly 4 years preparing MashUp, with 75 different museums, galleries and museums from around the world lending art to the exhibition.  

This exhibition should be spectacular. Lucky to be in Vancouver!!
